The Rogue was one of the first popular top airflow RDAs. It’s simple and very clean design and build deck caught our interest. And as always we want to find out what the design differences between RDAs will do to the flavour.
At first the deck looks a little daunting with the simple screws on the sides to grab your wire. But it’s a very easy deck to build. Simply secure your centre post leads and then position and wrap your outer leads. Do your best to get the coils out and up towards the airflow holes, this will garner the best flavour for sure and help with spitback.
It may be just the quality top airflow but the overall vape is a little light, it lacks the thicker volume we prefer. For a reasonably condensed chamber you would also expect rich flavour but that too is sort of mediocre. The exhale seems to have richer flavour than the inhale which is odd. But this little atty sure chucks the clouds for it’s size and the airflow is pretty wide. It almost doesn’t qualify as a Flavourchaser atty.
We played with 0.3 Ohm 24 Gage builds and found it nice and warm, but the Rogue seems to have better flavour around 0.4 Ohm with nothing thicker than 26 Gage. Lining up your airflow with your coils is also a bit of a challenge, its best to line the top cap up first and then try to visual align as you place it on the build deck (a bit of a pain).
Overall it’s a light rather airy vape with okay flavour, going to give the Aeolus a go next and see if there is anything to this top airflow design.
Try the clone, if you love it, buy the authentic.
